Vitanza Brunello 2003
Of the 250 wines I've tasted this ranks among the top 5, one of the best I've ever tasted. Lost my tasting notes but remember near flawless balance and integration with mouthfuls of smooth black plum, dark fig, and black cherry with notes of spice, just a bit of earth, just-right acid and tannin, medium-plus body, a finish that lasted and lasted. Wine just got better after 1.5 hrs but alas we'd finished the bottle. I'm not a person to buy $50 wine but this one might work if I can share it with friends over a fine meal.
